The Audio-technica ATDM-0604 is a 6-channel automatic mixer that’s great for meetings, conferences, courtroom proceedings, soft codec applications, radio and TV broadcasts, as well as other applications involving the use of multiple microphones or other media inputs. Using Audio-technica’s SmartMixer technology, channels can be mixed automatically in gain sharing or gate mode, thus ensuring that audio output from all inputs in a particular setup is consistent, high-quality, and doesn’t introduce feedback, comb filtering, or excessive ambient noise.
Controls and LED indicators on the mixer’s front panel let users easily adjust input/output (I/O) and gain levels, set and recall presets, turn on or off the phantom power, low-cut filter, automatic mixing, and acoustic echo cancellation (AEC), change IP configuration (Auto or Static), and more. It also includes Web Remote functionality, enabling users to handle the aforementioned adjustments remotely from a Windows-based PC, Mac, iOS, or Android device, and make additional adjustments to the I/O settings, select gate or gain sharing mode when using Smart Mix, and alter other advanced settings.
It comes equipped with 4 balanced mic inputs, 2 balanced mic/line inputs, and 1 unbalanced stereo input, along with 2 balanced and two unbalanced outputs. Network (Cat5e or better) and USB ports are also included, as are A/B Audio-Technica Link ports for users to connect to 6 ATDM-0604 mixers via Cat5e cable (additional mixers and cable sold separately) for simultaneous use within an expanded setup configuration.
